The APSB has established the Biobank, a bio-repository, to centrally and securely house valuable research material currently stored in ultracold (-80 degrees) freezers throughout the Schools.

The Biobank will assist researchers in the secure storage of their samples that are:

  • Archival materials (irreplaceable/valuable samples from past research)
  • Back-up materials (critical/valuable samples from current research)
  • Materials generated from longitudinal and long-term studies (current and future research resources)

The Biobank is a purpose built facility at the North Terrace Campus built to a PC2 standard, housing 28 new Ultracold (-80 degrees) freezers. Detailed information on suitable and acceptable material for storage in the Biobank can be found in The Facility page.
